The first legitimate distillery in the State of Minnesota is offering tours to the general public this week, reports The Osakis Review.
The Panther Distillery, on East Pike Street, Osaki, will open its doors between 1 and 4pm from today until Saturday.
Visitors will be able to observe master distiller, Brett Grinager at work, as he creates the whiskey which the distillery started producing in May of this year. It will take two further years of ageing in charred oak casks before it can be sold as bourbon.
Owner, Adrian Panther, told the local newspaper: “It took us two years of planning and applying for permits to receive our license, but we’re finally legit.”
All the ingredients for their whisky and other spirits, down to the oak casks, are sourced from Minnesota.
